Tailored to students, I approach each person as an individual, matching their energy and helping them stick to their goals. Kids are encouraged to play and have fun as well as increase their awareness of their own habits and practices, so they can learn in a way that is best suited to them, and feel empowered to take charge of their learning. I engage their tastes as well, so in addition to theory and textbook work, we can focus on learning songs that interest them. I prepare vocal students both classically and for pop and musical theatre, including audition prep for acting, so many bases are covered, giving them flexibility in their capabilities and working to improve their existing strengths.
I expect parents to be supportive by creating or facilitating an environment and regular check-ins at home so that each student has every chance of succeeding. I will help make an easy plan for students to stick to that fits with their life schedule, so they can achieve their goals and feel fantastic about it! Let's do this!
With a degree in Performance, I have been teaching piano, singing and performance for 7 years, and Kinderbeat for 2 years. I regularly perform and tour my own original cabaret shows so have some industry knowledge and experience. My fun, can-do attitude brings joy and fun to the classroom, but darlings, I am a diva, and I do expect that my students share my love of hard work, commitment and a strong sense of self-belief to produce high quality results. If not, then that's where I can help you out!
